BLURB 

Ciarán Blane had always been a soldier. It was the only way of life he knew. But he hadn’t been an average warrior, since he was not even an ordinary man to begin with. He was something more than human, carrying a wild beast within, akin to a werewolf-like creature straight from legends and myths…

Except he was very real.

Ciarán was a highly trained sniper who was sent into the thick of the fray, when basic human senses were failing. He was also an executioner for his own kind, when they lost all semblance of a civilized being and had gone rogue. After years of dealing in death, he was on the cusp of losing his own humanity in favor to his ferocious nature. And once that happened, nothing but death awaited him…

Danielle Kendrick had planned her whole life up to the smallest detail, only to helplessly watch all her dreams and hopes unravel and crumple at her feet. All of it being merely the outcome of one catastrophic moment, when the truth had been revealed in all its ugly glory. Not the truth about her, but her older brother, who turned out to be a far cry from the person everybody thought he was.

After his death, all his sins fell on Dani’s shoulders, in the blink of an eye costing her the loss of family, friends, a house and a dream career. But fate was not yet done with her and kept testing her by placing more challenges in her way. Was Ciarán going to be one of too many and her final downfall at once?

Being the mate to a savage alpha male would be hard enough but he was the very person, who was the catalyst behind her life falling apart. Was Danielle going to be able see past that and trust the intimidating man, who seemed to be nothing more than a hardened killer, possessing the same traits she despised in her own brother?

Will she turn her back on Ciarán and by doing that, damn them both?

Was a dominant male, used to having his way in every aspect of life, be able to rein in his primal instinct for a love he doesn’t believe in? Or does the hunter turn into the very thing he hated and become the prey instead?

CHAPTER 22

The forest didn’t offer Ciarán the usual peace when he stepped into it. He took a deep breath, trying to take in all his surroundings, but he felt too wound up inside to focus on anything outside of his own body.
Big mistake… lethal even, he thought. At least in his case.

He had never been the one to forget that danger could creep behind every corner, to lurk in the darkness and ambush when one least expected it. It was not only a part of his job, it was simply in his nature.
The same nature that was howling in his mind now, demanding he go back to his female.

But he was not going to let his animal decide this matter again. Yes, he wanted to be with her, already more than he should. That was why he left her and found himself in the forest in the first place.
He slept with her.

Literally, he thought, and it was something he had never done in his entire life. He was all about sex with no strings attached, but right now he had found himself in the completely opposite situation, feeling at a loss.

She had achieved what nobody had ever before her-she made him care. And she had done it with such grace and imperceptibly that it seemed like he was spellbound.
He was a selfish and heartless bastard, so he wanted to know how exactly could this happen?

He had turned all the emotions off many years ago because what were they if not a bad adviser? What good they were except for heartache?
Nothing, that’s what.

They were a weakness and a slippery slope leading to complete demise. Having emotions meant having a conscience and that left him not able to perform his job. Not being the only thing he knew how to be.
A killer.
What else was he good for? Ciarán asked himself.

He had slept with her, when he was rarely able to sleep by himself and that had made him feel vulnerable. Vulnerability was something he didn’t do particularly well. The truth was, holding her in his arms felt too good.

Danielle was his weakness, and by that she had made him weak as well. He had always known she was dangerous but couldn’t imagine exactly how much, until now. What was he to do about that? The answer was not a simple one, he thought.

He wanted to have her but without all these complications. And now, when he knew exactly how soft and how tight she was, how could he think about anything else other than finally possessing her body? He clenched his fists, feeling the pinpricks of his beast’s claws.

His body felt tight, so his animal started to feel constricted as well. He knew it, and knew what needed to be done, but for the first time he was not looking forward to it.

She was changing him in a way he couldn’t be changed, because no matter how bitter the truth was there was nothing awaiting him outside of his own torment.

Being with her and basking in the light of her purity was not for him, that much was clear. And even though he wanted to be better for her, there was no denying his true nature. He wanted to have her but he couldn’t be with her, so where did that leave him exactly?

He needed to straighten his head and get back into the game. It had been too long since he held his rifle and felt it tremble, when he was the one to decide.
Life or death. Death, always death, it was what he dealt with the best after all.

It was what he knew, what he was good at and this was the reality he should stick to, he decided, throwing his head back and roaring out his frustration where there was only wildlife to witness his anguish.
